I am writing this on behalf of my blogger sister Elviza who is a lawyer, a wife, a mother, a daughter and in her spare time volunteers with MERCY Malaysia, a non-profitorganization focusing on providing medical relief and sustainable health related development for vulnerable communities.
From the page of MERCY Malaysia;
MERCY Malaysia has initiated an emergency response assessment team on the 30th December 2008 to Egypt in response to the humanitarian crisis resulting from the Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, which has killed more than 300 people and wounded more than 1,500 people.
The team, aimed at conducting a rapid assessment of the humanitarian needs, will be led by MERCY Malaysia President Datuk Dr. Jemilah Mahmood and EXCO Member Norazam Ab Samah.
We appeal to concerned Malaysians to send in cash donations.
MERCY Malaysia's basis of assistance to the beneficiaries relies on the support and generosity of individuals such as you to contribute to the PALESTINE RELIEF FUND.
It will support our efforts to procure emergency surgical kits, additional medicine and hospital equipment which will be channeled to the affected communities in Gaza.
